This museum quality reproduction is made from a natural resin composite to attain the heft of the argillite original. Made in Canada.

  • Frog
    The Frog, although not found in the territory of the northern Indians, plays a significant part in their mythology. It has been suggested that the lore of the frog came with their ancestors from Asia. The Frog is usually portrayed by a wide toothless mouth and flat nose, and showing feet and toes.
